Formula SAE Japan

Formula SAE Competition of Japan challenges student teams to plan, design and produce a small formula-style racing car. The competition focuses on the overall activities surrounding object creation; in other words, not only the running performance, but also the car concept and design, as well as cost and other aspects of the vehicle. Applying Model-Based Design with MATLAB and Simulink products for system design and simulation, embedded code generation, and physical modeling helps you complete its mission.
